After a soft launch earlier this month, GameStop has suspended its forthcoming PowerPass service, set to offer customers unlimited access to used games for six months. The program was originally scheduled to fully launch in the coming weeks, with sign-ups to begin on November 19.

Initial reports on the PowerPass program explained that it would allow participants to essentially rent used titles from GameStop. (Those titles would be limited to ones offered at the store’s physical locations, rather than through the chain’s online inventory.) PowerPass’s $60 price-tag would cover six months of playing and swapping, after which customers could select one preowned game to keep permanently. Whether or not the program’s specifics will change as a result of the suspension remains unclear.
